Tanner McKee received an offer from the Huskers on Nov. 20, 2016.

That offer came the day after McKee attended Nebraska's game against Maryland. He spoke highly of that visit to Lincoln in interviews with Huskers Illustrated, Husker Online and Big Red Report.

“The coaches are awesome and I relate to them well. And the atmosphere at Nebraska is really cool," McKee told The World-Herald.

McKee is technically a 2018 recruit, but he's more like a member of the 2020 class. That's because McKee will take a two-year mission after high school in keeping with his Mormon faith.

He was teammates for one season in 2015 with Tyjon Lindsey, a member of the Huskers' 2017 signing class.

McKee is considered to be a pro-style quarterback by the major recruiting services. He threw for 3,552 yards and 36 touchdowns, while also running for 539 yards and 15 more touchdowns as a junior in 2016.

He attends the same high school that produced former Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez.

McKee posted a SPARQ score of 95.28 at The Opening Regional in Seattle in May. That included a 4.94-second 40-yard dash, 4.12-second 20-yard shuttle, 37-foot kneeling powerball toss and 32.1-inch vertical jump.

McKee then earned an invite to the Elite 11 Finals after a standout performance at The Opening Regional in Houston in February 2017.
